A lot has been written on Force Majeure in recent times but an empirical analysis was missing till the emergence of the paper titled FORCE MAJEURE, FRUSTRATION AND IMPOSSIBILITY: A QUALITATIVE EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS.
Written by Smaran Shetty and Pranav Budihal, lawyers working at Keystone Partners, Advocates and Solicitors, the research paper is a fine specimen of excellent research and writing too! The full paper is embedded at the end of this post.
The findings of the above-mentioned report will be discussed, and some speculations offered as to how the ongoing pandemic is likely to affect the law of force majeure.
The researchers-lawyers will also address how we went about researching this issue and offer guidance to those who are interested in empirical legal research.
The session will conclude by also offering some guidance on legal research and writing more generally.
